Techies Life in India on edge

Posted by sumit rana
I hope my this article will found you guys fine. Its been a long that i have not posted anything, however today i find the write mood to share something from which i am also suffering.

India is refereed as software exporter giant in world. Everybody around the world has been surprised by the quality and inventions, Indians has achieved in software industry. Every second boy or girl after his secondary education is choosing the technical line and want to contribute to the virtual world of computers.

We all know future is all about technology and computers will play the vital role. However at this fast pace we are missing few things which might leave to a major damage in future to our rising software supergiants. We are in race of earning money, working all night all day. Immense number of available resources in this particular field has dis balanced the job culture in India.

I remember, in 2008, there were total 14 lac student who has opted for engineering, however at the end of 2012 when they got the degree as per the stats only 2-3 lakhs were able to get placed. I still wonder where are the rest 12 lac engineers !!!!

Have they opted for some other career option, then why they did engineering !!! This is the small face of the problem, the larger picture is the job risk in today'ss world we are facing in IT industry. It might be due to the changing VISA laws all around the world or the increase in demand of automation.

In recent NASSCOM (The National Association of Software and Services Companies) conference few of our IT leaders has raised very critical points. They said the education level for engineering in India is at very low level. In few states you can locate engineering college at every 500 meter on a single road the perfect reference for this is Banglore and Punjab.

Its good that we have these many options around us, however the standard of teaching in these colleges is all shit. They are producing dumb engineers, who are not even able to get jobs in there respective field of engineering. Those who are able to get re not ready to upgrade their skillset with the changing requirements all around the world.

The current demand of time is automation and cloud computing but our 60 % resources are not ready to grab the changes, they just want to continue with their current skillset which will not be acceptable after few years and help them in loosing their jobs. The early trends have start coming as we can find in newspaper that after every quarter profit analysis Tech companies are firing their employees on the basis of performance appraisals.

Also few companies are not respecting to the labor ethics and giving very small hikes as compared to the talent of people as they have very large options in front of them to replace the current resources.
The consequence of this is cream is moving to other countries, applying for PR majorly in Canada and Australia for better compensation and life style.

This problem will keep on rising, if we all will not give attention to this. Might be soon our nation can become the software Importer rather then exporter.
